The recently filed lawsuit against Carnival Cruise Lines is about more than cruise ships. While the suit targets cruise and port operations, it also jeopardizes the fate of 63 acres of waterfront property and the entire Union Pier Concept Plan. This plan was shaped largely by public input over the past two years. It offers great benefits for Charleston, including the redevelopment of some 35 acres of downtown property for public and other uses.
Cruises in Charleston contribute $37 million in economic benefits each year! Join us in support of the cruise business in Charleston and the Union Pier Plan by signing the petition below! Signatures will be delivered on your behalf to Mayor Joe Riley and members of City Council.
